Biohazard boys back with a bang; REVIEW.
Biohazard HMV INSTITUTE, BIRMINGHAM "IT'S been a while," admitted frontman Billy Graziadei, in reference to Biohazard's long-overdue return to Birmingham, as he surveyed the sweaty crowd.
"We've missed your beer...
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2012 and your girlfriends!" he added, as Brooklyn's hardcore veterans sought to make up for lost time. If the crowd response was anything to go by, it would be fair to say 'we missed you more, Billy!'' Having reformed the original line-up to release the acclaimed Reborn In Defiance album - only for vocalist Evan Seinfeld to quit (again) - Biohazard certainly lived up to its title.
While the new material was generously received, it was the old standards that really kicked the pit into action - especially as muscleman actor Dolph Lundgren ''spoke'' through the PA to signal the onslaught of Punishment.
Shades Of Grey, Wrong Side Of The Tracks and Hold My Own were no less incendiary, the only regret being that the show seemed to be over in the blink of an eye. Just don't leave it too long next time, chaps. VERDICT: MARK WOODWARD
